Tax issues can be complex, and interactions with the IRS can be trying. In the event of an audit or tax issue, our team can represent you and advocate for your business interests.
Don’t just accept whatever assessment the IRS may propose without first allowing an expert to analyze it and determine whether or not it’s appropriate.

Estimated Tax Payment Calculations & Strategies
Smart businesses treat taxes as more than a “bill” due each April. Tax filings as an opportunity.
We’d like to use our expertise to demystify your taxes and put you on a plan to maximize savings. Of course, we always recommend that you make your quarterly estimated payments, but we will also devise strategies for your particular business needs:
- Split income among several family members or legal entities in order to get more income taxed in a lower bracket.
- Shift income or expenses from one year to another in order to have them fall at a time when they will be taxed at a lower rate.
- Defer tax liabilities through certain investment choices such as pension plans and other similar vehicles.
- Use certain investments to produce income that is tax-exempt from either federal, state, or both taxing entities.
- Generate tax deductions by the way you structure your ownership and use of certain things you enjoy, such as a vacation home.
Through careful planning and legitimate tax avoidance strategies, our clients find that their tax savings pay for our services many times over.
